The sea, the big "blue pharmacy", is an – almost - inexhaustible reservoir of wonderful, always surprising active ingredients. Also for this reason, it cannot be said often enough, we also have to treat this ecosystem respectfully.
That's why we are growing our Laminaria algae - one of these active ingredient wonders - in Germany's first certified organic mariculture farm. And embed our highly concentrated marine raw materials in just a few carefully selected ingredients such as aloe vera, jojoba oil or shea butter.
For example, Oceanwell is not only NATRUE-certified with its three care series, but also the only natural cosmetics in the world that provide highly concentrated marine ingredients. And therefore does not need a "bit of this and that". Which is of course much more pleasant for your skin.
Not to mention the following "no-gos":
- Raw materials from petroleum chemistry (mineral oils, paraffins, silicones)
- Polyethylene Glycol (PEG) and Polypropylene Glycol (PPG)
- parabens, silicones
- formaldehyde releaser
- microplastic (e.g. for scrubs we use very fine sea-sand)
- nanoparticles (e.g. sunscreen filters, titanium oxide, zinc oxide)
- synthetic fragrances and dyes
All products are dermatologically tested - of course not on animals. And we also focus on conservation of our fragrances: Since the rosewood tree has since been classified as endangered, we have replaced its essences with an essential oil from the sustainably grown Hoholz tree. Combined with natural lemongrass oil, it is the fragrance of the Basic.Line, which by the way was created especially for us. Fresh, tender - like a gentle sea breeze.
